A couple of weeks ago, I saw this really great video being passed around. Mary Sherman Morgan, Alice Ball, and Rachel Lloyd were all chemists whose work has fundamentally changed the way we live, and yet their stories were all but lost to us. I wanted to know more not just about these women scientist, but about the folks who took the time to make and share this video.
In this first of several posts I am delighted to share some of the discussion I had with Noel Waghorn of Reactions, the maker of this and other really great videos about chemistry and chemists! In the next few posts, I'll go into a bit more detail about each of these amazing scientists and their lives.
